Welcome to the 13th International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR 2015), hosted by the REGIM-Lab. (University of Sfax, Tunisia) and the IAPR Tunisian Society (Association S.I.T). ICDAR 2015 was relocated from Tunisia to France due to security reasons. The conference is endorsed by the University of Lorraine and by the LORIA laboratory in Nancy.

ICDAR 2015 is sponsored by the International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR) and technically co-sponsored by TC-10 (Graphics Recognition)TC-11(Reading Systems), IEEE Computer Society , IEEE Region 8, and Tunisian Chapter of the IEEE Computer Society.

ICDAR is the premier international forum for researchers and practitioners in the document analysis community for identifying, encouraging and exchanging ideas on  the  state-of-the-art  technology  in  document  analysis,  understanding,  retrieval,  and  performance  evaluation.  The term  document  in  the  context  of  ICDAR  encompasses  a  broad  range  of  documents  from  historical  forms  such  as palm leaves and papyrus to traditional documents and modern multimedia documents.
